    It's not a conspiracy..... At least not by the businesses.... I'm sure there are plenty out there who are willing to conspire against the said businesses...

    Unions are a perfect example of a "conspiracy."

    Naturally, that means dipping into both sides of the aisle.
    Doesn't matter, you either support the practices of our existing government or you don't.

    Yeah I know business too...

    No offense but your boss sounds like a complete a jerk.

    Unions are a democracy. I guess you consider democracy a conspiracy then.

    You don't have any logical data..... You just think you do.

    Unions are NOT a democracy...... Funny how when the issue of "right to work" comes up the unions go into corporation mode.

    Bosses. The higher you go, the more of them you have, until you get to rair air.

    And they're not asses. They are protecting their company. We can't afford 60 full timers. Fact is, it seems to me that the affordable care act was let about medical care, and more about a federal full time hour mandate.

    The administration doesn't author the jobs figures though. No administration does.

    Somehow you think that a family with an underwater mortgage is just going to be able to uproot and move to a new location free of cost and start magically working. Doesn't work that way.

    That doesn't even include what a cost to "retrain" would be. The fantasy is those thinking that people can just switch jobs and move their entire family at a drop of ahat free of charge. And you would have to think it is free of charge, otherwise where are they going to get the money to relocate and retrain in the first place?
    All excuses, that is all you have to offer.

    I on the other hand look for ways to prosper. Let me give you a little example, I'm out of work and have a family, what do I do. First I go where the work is, notice I said "I" and I know there is work and I will find a job. That is being what they call "positive thinking" I get a job and live in a boarding house and send money home. Once I'm established I move the family or in the meantime if work picks back up in my home town I go back. Either way I have options. One thing I will not do is sit on my ass and make excuses.

    BTW moving can be free, in many cases the employer will move you for free. Especially when they need you and they need you when you go where the work is. And the reason you go where the work is, is to work so you have money for the needs of the family.
